We visited Prague in July, 2016 and booked two rooms at the Domus Balthasar in Prague. The rooms were charming, VERY spacious, and super clean. The location was EXCELLENT---literally 1 minute to the historic Charles Bridge. We couldn't believe it. It MADE our stay in Prague. We stayed in the upstairs suite on the 4th floor. It had quite a...

Everyone seems to love this place but it could be so much better with a little fine tuning and attention to detail. I seem to be going against the grain but I would like to give some constructive criticism based on our stay. The positives as mentioned by most people, the location couldn't be better, our rooms were large and... More

Placed in the heart of Prague, this boutique hotel has a great service and has an excellent location. Very good breakfast served in the cafe next door. It offers transfers in/out by pre booking. Warning, the attic room is not suitable for 1.75m+ people because of its low ceiling.

Thank you for the nice review. We hope the low ceiling wasn't too much of a trouble for you. At the same time, we believe that the photos and descriptions provided on our website prevent the taller guests from booking our attic room and hopefully this comment will help too. Feel welcome to stay with us again and perhaps try... More

We loved our stay at Domus Balthasar. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and the staff helped us book concert tickets and gave us advice on how to use the underground when we need to get across the city to the bus station. Our room was very spacious, with a desk and a couch in addition to a bed, and... More

The Hotel is very nice and has the best location! A few blocks from the Metro station that comes from the airport. A few blocks from the tram that gets you to the castle.

This hotel is definitely to be recommended. It has really nice and clean rooms. Its location is perfect! Just a few steps to Charles Bridge and only short walks to the places of interest. The staff is very friendly and has good suggestions for restaurants and activities.

Excellent small hotel just a few yards from Charles Bridge. Friendly staff, comfortable room. Rooms are arranged around a central stairwell. There is no lift so if you happen to be in the attic (4th floor, 75 steps), make sure you spend time in the gym before you go. However, the good side is that the attic rooms are beamed... More

Thanks for the recommendation, it means much to us. The disposition of the preserved historical house unfortunately cannot meet needs of people unable to conquer the stairs, however, we communicate the fact thoroughly and do our best to trade the flaw for a unique atmospere.. and frankly.. spending time in the gym is healthy anyway :) Come again!

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
